Quick question about Livebearers and Anglefish
I'm getting fish tommarow and my sister and my mom want angle fish for our 75 gallon tank. I read a little somthing a while back about anglefish being agressive. I was wondering if putting a few anglefish in a tank of basically all livebearers would be ok or would it result in the death of fry or adult fish

They shouldn't bother the adults but they will definitely eat fry. Also, people have noted that adult livebearers (mollies especially) can nip at the long flowing fins of angelfish. As for putting a few angels: if you end up with a breeding pair of angels, they can become aggressive towards the other angels so you might end up having to remove all but the breeding pair.

Thanks for the advice. I didnt want breeding anglefish, and i didnt want them to eat the other fry in the the tank. Its a good thing I didnt get any then! Thanks again
